Please join us for a special Capital Cable discussion on the gripping, thrilling and timely new documentary "Beyond Utopia," which follows various families as they attempt to flee North Korea, one of the most oppressive places on Earth, a land they grew up believing was a paradise. This documentary is a suspenseful, riveting portrait of the lengths people will go to gain freedom, and takes us on a journey with a courageous pastor as he works tirelessly to guide individuals attempting to flee North Korea. 

Joining us for the discussion will be Dr. Sue Mi Terry, one of the producers of the documentary, and Amb. Robert King, who served as President Barack Obama's special envoy for North Korean human rights issues from 2009 to 2017.

This timely episode will also discuss the broader topic of North Korean human rights, and the recent confirmation of Amb. Julie Turner as the new special envoy on North Korean human rights issues, the first person to hold that position since Amb. King in 2017. 

The Capital Cable is made possible by general support to the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
